Jewel Osco Wish Big Win Big

I am obsessed with the Jewel Win Big contest going on now thru February.

I've always been a fan of the Monopoly game at McDonald's the only downside of that is that you constantly have to buy food at McDonald's.

The Jewel version is perfect because I go to Jewel practically every day.

I will say I've reached the point where now all I need is 1 game piece per prize.

In these moments I always wonder...."Is this game real?" "Are people winning these prizes?"

I was downtown Christmas shopping and the radio was on and they announced that 3 people had won prizes from the Jewel game: 2 people won LED TV's and 1 person won an iPad 2

This made me happy for a second because I thought "I guess the game is real."

Then I got mad cause all 3 winners lived in the suburbs.

I'm still playing and would love to win even the $2 cash prize.

Maybe I should start going to multiple Jewels around the city and suburbs to increase my chances.

Things I've baked recently

I made my aunts favorite banana bread recipe.

Sorry old family recipe.

S'more brownies I made for our movie podcast. I don't recommend doing the last step where you put the marshmallows on the brownies then put them under a broiler. My entire pan of brownies caught on fire and I ran down my hallway screaming "Somebody help me!!!"

If you have one of those kitchen torches...I think that would be better.

I made a grape pie with the grapes my girlfriends and I picked at a farm on my bachelorette party.

Spaghetti Squash

I have yet to try a spaghetti squash but let it be known that I am obsessed with it.

I've heard tales that this squash not only resembles spaghetti in texture but also in taste.

It just sounds too good to be true.

One of my friends went so far as to say she served it to her husband and he couldn't tell the difference.

Legend says the whole squash is only like 100 calories.

The next time I go to the Jewel I'm going to buy one and prepare it like regular spaghetti.

I can't wait!

Breaking Bad Cake Pops

I bought my brother these handmade Breaking Bad cake pops for his birthday.

He got a big kick out of them and said they tasted delicious.

My Deepest Apologies

You guysssssssss!

I'm so sorry I haven't blogged in so long.

Just visiting my blog makes me so anxious because I know I should be blogging.

I figured no one even visited this page anymore but then I checked google analytics and as of yesterday 43 of you came here and once again saw I had nothing new up.

I'm sorry and I'm officially back.

I was getting married....good excuse????

Ummmm not really but kind of...I mean I just watched 3 episodes of teen mom in a row so you know where my real passion lies. (I'm not sure if that is how you spell "lies" in the context of that that is making me not want to post this blog because I don't want you guys to think I can't spell. No...I don't want to google how to spell lies...must press on!)

I will be getting wedding pictures this week and will post them but I wanted to share a hilarious article I came across months ago while in the full throws of planning our wedding.

Please enjoy Barbie and Ken's wedding album.
